Māori Music set to go off with a bang in 2006!

The National Māori Music Summit finishes with a bang at the State Opera House in Wellington on 17 November 2006. The four-hour long concert ‘Pao Pao Pao 2006’, features some of the best bilingual Māori artists from a variety of musical genre including opera, classical, reggae, kapa haka and traditional instrumentalists.

The summit will showcase emerging artists alongside international acts like Hinewehi Mohi of Oceania and APRA Award winner Ruia Aperahama. Hinewehi says, “I am excited to be a part of ‘Pao Pao Pao 2006’ and look forward to joining with the rest of the Māori music whānau to put on a wicked show.”

This is a rare opportunity to hear and see the cream of Maori music in all its guises. Tickets are selling through Ticketek, get in quick to secure yourself and your whānau tickets by logging on to or by visiting a Ticketek agency.
